An insurance firm has offered a £50,000 reward for information about an aggravated burglary at the home of a billionaire businessman in Staffordshire.
Staffordshire Police said the unnamed firm was offering the reward to anyone who provides information which directly results in the conviction of those responsible for the raid at the home of John Caudwell, and the recovery of a substantial amount of his property.
The former Phones4U boss was struck over the head with an iron bar after raiders burst into Broughton Hall, near Eccleshall, Staffordshire, on the evening of November 1.
They ran off across surrounding fields, taking cash and jewellery, including a Chanel diamond watch, a gold Breitling watch and a diamond necklace.
Detective Chief Inspector Tim Martin, who is leading the inquiry into the break-in, said: "We have a dedicated team of detectives pursuing a number of lines of inquiry.
"An insurance company has put up a substantial reward and we would appeal to anyone who has information to contact us.
"Images of some of the stolen jewellery have previously been issued, and can still be seen on the Staffordshire Police and Merseyside Police websites.
"We would like to hear from anyone who has been offered any jewellery in suspicious circumstances, or knows of its whereabouts."
The reward will be split if more than one person is entitled to it, the officer added.
Two men, aged 43 and 33 and both from Liverpool, were arrested shortly after the offence and remain on police bail pending further inquiries.
